I made this cake for an entry into the annual Christmas in October dessert auction held at our church.  The donations and proceeds of the auction are divided among several of the missionaries/missionary families supported by the church — these gifts are above the regular monthly support they receive.  These are gifts for them to use at their discretion however they want/need at Christmastime.

Additionally, more than a fund raiser, I think its just a fun way to spend the evening — in that sense, it’s a fun raiser! — a way to get together as a body to share in blessing one another for the purpose of sending tangible loving support to missionaries.
